4,200 immigration candidates get invited in the latest Express Entry
A new Express Entry draw was held on September 30, 2020. The federal skilled worker’s program was considered to be successful for the third time. The number of invites today issued in an indication that Canada is committed to welcome immigrants.
The minimum score( comprehensive ranking system score) required to acquire an invitation, in this case, was 471. The score has decreased with one point in comparison to earlier all-program draw on September 16.
The Canadian Express Entry system controls the candidate profiles for three major economic-class immigration programs — the Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSW), Federal Skilled Trades Class (FST) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
This system decides the eligibility of the candidates for FSWC, FSTC, CEC programs, and some Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) on their CRS ( comprehensive ranking system) score.
The CRS score is based on age, work experience, education and proficiency in French or English. The highest-ranked candidates in the pool for Express entry will receive their Invitation To Apply, and this qualifies them to apply for their permanent residence. All candidates with a CRS score of 471 and above who submitted their profile before this date and time received an ITA in this invitation round.
